Support from management

Current supervisor was out of touch with his employees. He was very vindictive and a poor communicator.

Suggestions for improvement

  • North Amarican headquarters in Antioch, Tn profited over 500 million dollars last year and 450 million in 2014, but yet they don't pay a living wage in some departments. Show your employees that you appreciate them where it matters and that is on their paychecks.

What I like about the company

The 401k match up to 4% was good, and the Christmas Parties and other company outings were good as well.

What I dislike about the company

Poor communication with management. Wages and increases were poor. Long hours with mandatory overtime. No chance for advancement.

  • Employee

Support from management

The management team was not receptive to ideas initiated by workers. They seemed to have closed minds when it came to employee ideas and suggestions

Teamwork

Teamwork was only exhibited between employees. Management rarely worked with employees to find common ground solutions

Internal Communication

The work is heavy and the conditions are hot.

Office / Work Environment

There is a lot of heavy lifting with little or no training or support apparatis.

Work-Life Balance

In the summer time you are required to work long hours in many cases. So work-family balance is dictated by company need.

Job Security

The middle management of the company has a pretty quick trigger, and with Tennessee's labor laws being as weak as they are you have little if no job security. I have witnessed employees getting dismissed in a "whim".

Suggestions for improvement

  • Wirtgen North America has grown in to a company that no longer seems to value its blue collar workers fairly. They replace full time blue collar workers with temporary employees on a whim. The turnover rate for blue collar workers vs white collar workers is at least 20 to 1.

What I like about the company

Wirtgen did have a really nice Christmas party for the children separate from its adult parties.

What I dislike about the company

The wages were so low that an employee can not live off their income. The management had become aggressive toward its blue collar workers by segregating department functions and even restrooms.
